Aal around Aalborg: Sindets Day, Confucius Institute Day, Halloween event at Musikkens Hus for kids, jazz, and more!

Posted on Updated on

I have been a big irregular with my events posts lately for myriad reasons. This week my delayed post can be chalked up to being out of town on business. Here is an abridged version of what I hope will become a more substantial post over the next few days. Remember – it’s autumn holiday (efterårsferie) next week so some activities are dedicated to keeping children and families occupied, while the overall level of activity seems to be reduced. I’ll also update the calendar as soon as I’m able, i.e. after I get home.
